ASHEVILLE, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/10 --
-- Cloud Leverage today launches enterprise-grade cloud solutions at a cost previously only available through commodity cloud offerings. At $.05 a GB per datacenter with no transfer or bandwidth charges -- Cloud Leverage offers a complete storage solution at a previously unavailable price.
-- A fundamental requirement of a cloud infrastructure environment is the ability to not only meet current needs, but scale to future demands as well. Utilizing its global footprint of 32 datacenters, Cloud Leverage has the built-in scalability to address the requirements of customers of any size.
-- Recognizing that customers still harbor security concerns about cloud solutions, Cloud Leverage's storage solution has airtight security measures that include SSL on data in transit, AES on data at rest, rights management for user access to files and even intense screening of the credentials for the employees who have access to the datacenter and the cloud.
-- Cloud Leverage's storage solution is a mature offering that comes to market with features such as a full-functionality REST API; native Windows desktop support; a Windows Sync client; a WebDAV client for Linux and Mac as well as mobile clients for Blackberry, Windows Mobile and iPhone. In addition, Cloud Leverage has an advanced feature set that includes: deleted file recovery capability, CDN publishable URL and full branding for partners and resellers among others.
-- Cloud Leverage provides the flexibility users demand in a cloud computing environment through enhanced capabilities for existing and future Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and anytime access to files.
-- In addition to its cloud storage offering, Cloud Leverage offers cloud acceleration, cloud DNS and cloud IPS/firewall on top of its 32 datacenter footprint with edge caching and acceleration. This provides businesses with the ability to convert a traditional centralized computing footprint into a highly available and resilient globally distributed environment. This is not your typical CDN.
-- Cloud Leverage is largely funded by Netriplex, a leading provider of mission-critical data center solutions, and is an independent, privately funded company. Cloud Leverage's solutions are all currently in general availability. For more information, call: 888.600.CLOUD or visit: www.cloudleverage.com.

Cloud Leverage is different in that we bring the market a solution that is well defined and a direct response to the needs of customers," said Jonathan Hoppe, president & CTO of Cloud Leverage. "Our cloud storage, security and acceleration solutions come with a rich feature set that provides customers with the flexibility, scalability and security that is critical in a cloud infrastructure environment -- all at a price never before seen with an enterprise cloud offering. We see this as a crucial stepping stone for the future widespread adoption of cloud storage."
-- "The cloud is quickly gaining ground as a promising solution for IT managers looking to cut their storage costs without sacrificing functionality.
